Beep Test

Beep Test


Ever wondered how fit you are (but were afraid to ask)?

This app can help you.

All you need is
- a pair of running shoes
- a flat 20 meter running pitch
- a modicum of enthusiasm
- this app

The app is a simple, meat'n'potatoes, program that will assist you in a private execution of the beep test. It will
- prompt you with ringtones that you select
- allows to run the first level at either of 8.0 kph or 8.5 kph
- display seconds to beep
- display seconds to next level
- display distance covered so far (incl. shuttles) and time elapsed

Note: Use "Settings" to select ringtones prior to first use (as many phones' default is "silent")

When you are done, the app will provide you with
- an estimated VO2_Max
- an estimated calorie consumption

... that will
- give you bragging rights (hopefully)
- allow you to compare your fitness to that of the general population
- allow you to chart your progress

Caution : Some side effects have been noticed
- Runner's high. You will find yourself smiling far too much
- Fitter. Regularly done, you will be able to 'run up those stairs'
- Leaner. Darn, gotta buy smaller jeans!

p.s. If you have having trouble with sound, make sure "Notification Volume" on your phone is turned up

Wish there were audio I plug my phone to my wireless speaker so I don't have to feel weighed down by a phone on my arm, but never know how well I've done until I run over to my phone to stop the beep test. If there were audio at the changing levels I would know how much more to push myself for a better time.

The available sound effects on my phone are all too quiet to be able to use the app to self test and hear the beeps without an extra speaker.

So far so good Its a little basic but good. Hasn't crashed or not worked. If something goes wrong with it I'll re submit my rating ;)

Rubbish Rubbish app, doesn't beep. Kinda defeats the purpose of a "beep" test app.
